The Old Town in Geneva is where you will see most of the historical landmarks in the city. Geneva’s Old Town is characterised by its winding cobblestone streets and alleyways with their coffee shops, restaurants and bars.

There are acouple of areas you should not miss when visiting the Old Town. Bourg-de-four, the main square which was formerly used as a Roman market place. Today this is the oldest and one of the busiest squares in the city, lined with places to eat and have a drink.

Hôtel de Ville, the present seat for the cantonal government is also in the Old Town. It is housed in a 15th century building and was where the famous Geneva Convention was held in 1864 as well as the birthplace of the League of Nations in 1920.

There is plenty to visit in the Old Town, museums, historical buildings, but the last place to make sure you catch is Promenade de la Treille, a romantic promenade with fantastic views over the city. It dates back to the 16th century, has one of the longest benches in the world and is located in the south of the Old Town.
